Domino’s Pizza updated the company’s logo, Vimeo hosts composer and music sound designer Diego Stocco, graphic designer James Victore talks modern day design industry challenges, and LEGO celebrates its 80th birthday with an animated video.

Check out what’s new and inspiring in the graphic design and digital media industries this week:

Domino’s Pizza Changes its Logo

Domino’s Pizza has updated its logo, aiming to bring “the art and skill of pizza-making front and center,” according to the L.A. Times.

The new logo goes hand-in-hand with the company’s plan to revamp its eateries with comfortable lobby areas, open kitchens and other updates like “ordering kiosks and boards that track to-go orders electronically.”

The hope for the “simple, visually striking logo” is to “reach the point where we’re as recognized as the Nike swoosh or the Golden Arches,” said Chief Marketing Officer Russell Weiner.
